The Ridgewood Tenants Union (RTU) was founded in 2014 and is an all-volunteer, tenant-led and independent anti-gentrification group whose mission is to grow the power of tenants in Ridgewood to collectively fight displacement. We work towards our mission by door-knocking to inform tenants about their rights, holding monthly tenant assemblies, organizing tenant associations, holding know-your-rights trainings, creating neighborhood-wide campaigns, and working in coalition with other housing groups in NYC. One of our current campaigns involves building up opposition against Avery Hall Investments' proposed 24-story luxury tower at 1590 Gates Ave, the site of our community's Food Bazaar Supermarket. This luxury tower will further increase rents in a neighborhood where so many of our neighbors are already rent burdened.

Postcards from the Edge 2020 - Call for Submissions

Postmark Deadline for Artwork: Monday, November 25, 2019

Since 1998, Visual AIDS has produced the annual Postcards From The Edge exhibition and benefit sale of original, postcard-sized works on paper by established and emerging artists. Known within the art world as the most exciting and affordable way to add to a collection, Postcards From the Edge offers a unique opportunity for buyers to acquire original, postcard-sized artwork for ONLY $85 EACH. Offered on a first-come, first-served basis, each piece is exhibited anonymously, and the identity of the artist is revealed only after the work is purchased. With the playing field leveled, all participants can take home a piece by a famous artist, or one who's just making their debut in the art world. Nonetheless, collectors walk away with something beautiful, a piece of art they love!

By participating in Postcards From the Edge artists and collectors support the activities of Visual AIDS, enabling the organization to produce AIDS-focused contemporary art programs and provide supplies and assistance to artists living with HIV/AIDS, many who are unable to continue producing work without such support. All Postcards From the Edge proceeds support the programs of Visual AIDS.

2020 will mark the 22nd year of Visual AIDS' benefit art sale and we hope that you will participate.

The 2020 event will be held January 3-5 at BORTOLAMI, 39 WALKER STREET, TRIBECA, NEW YORK CITY

PFTE is one of our most important fundraisers of the year, and its success will allow us to produce important art activism projects in 2020. By participating, artists support our mission, enabling us to produce AIDS-focused contemporary art programs and provide supplies and assistance to artists living with HIV/AIDS, many of whom are unable to continue producing work without such support.

THANK YOU - The support of artists makes this event a success each year. We couldn't do it without you!
